    Ride the Divide.

    I really enjoy Ride the Divide, Life Cycles and Inside Out.

    I did buy Reveal The Path, but it didn’t really hit the spot for me.

    Has to be Life Cycles – can watch that one over and over! Even my non cycling friends and family like it, which has to be the ultimate test of an MTB movie ๐Ÿ˜€

    Vast. Because it’s joyful, it feels like riding a bike, and it’s not up itself. And the soundtrack’s perfect, take me home, red travellinnnnnn socks. Even the obligatory crap dirt jump bit is watchable. Oh and it’s cheap on Itunes.

    And Seasons of course- OK, so it’s a bit serious and polished, all pros doing the day job but you know what, when it’s this good I don’t mind- the final scene sets the benchmark for this sort of thing.

    (we saw Follow Me in a double bill with Seasons… And I went away thinking Follow Me was dismal. Turns out it’s actually pretty good, it’s just that it was playing the exact same tune as Seasons, and not as well, it was completely outshone)

    Ones that missed for me- Find. How did that happen? Roam was so good, Find is almost without redeeming features. How do you take Steve Peat, Danny Macaskill, Hans Rey and a helicopter and make something completely boring? Uncanny.

    Lifecycles- there’s about 15 minutes of really nice riding in there but it’s drowned under the artschool project pish and it’s all in slow motion.

    Inside Out- all polish, no charm. Train gaps are like drum solos, you can’t do 2 in a set. It just never got going.

    This

    Couldn’t think of anything worse than sitting down and watching people riding bikes. Much better to be out there doing it. Only time I’ll watch anything bike related is a quick YouTube helmet cam of a section of trail I plan to ride and haven’t before.

    Anything by Anthill.
    The recent Chromag one was good, think it was called Shifted?
    NWD10.

    Been watching the making of Arrival and it’s looking pretty good.

    Can I have bmx bandits? In retrospect, it was utter tripe, but as a bike crazed kid wanting the whole world to share how rad bmx was, it was great ๐Ÿ˜€

    Lifecycles? The most pretentious pile of carp I’ve ever seen. The effects are amazing obviously, but spoiled by so much self indulgent and cringeworthy narration, and that slo-mo…….they could have made it a quarter the length! Boring ..but boring pretty pictures. ๐Ÿ˜•

    Edit- How could I forget Inspired?!
    The film that exploded Danny Mac into my awareness. Not so keen on later ones, too produced but this one had a rawness to it and I’d not seen riding like that before. The soundtrack too is perfect and it’s just a fantastic short.

    I’ve always liked Roam, Seasons has some great bits and Super8 for DH racing.

    Dirt & anything with D Macaskill

    I like the Earthed series. No slow motion flips or droning bro philosophy, just people pinning it and having fun.

    I thought Vast was really boring.

    I’ve just seen “3 Minute Gaps” for the first time – and I was really impressed. Good riding, some proper contributions from the riders, and enough of ‘a story’ to link it together. I now know why people are so impressed with Brendog.

    Also anything at all by Chris Askrigg… loved ’Five’ and ’A Hill in Spain’

    … but the best vid for me is Vicious Path II – not sure why: maybe because it looks so much fun without looking impossibly superhuman

    Dirt – Makes me want to ride my bike and have fun.

    All the best ones make want to do just that ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ll second Akrigg’s stuff, the mans a beast of skill and although I know I’ll never reach his upper echelon of skill, he’s good one to aspire to.

    Break the cycle is our household favourite, probably cos it features local trails rather than some uber exotic location full of dust

    Dirt is the obvious choice for me as I was 16 when it was released and has inspired me ever since!
    From the Inside Out wasn’t bad, Four by Three is good for home grown talent!
    The Collective is a tad pretentious but great riding
    Way back Home is a brilliant Mtb film-
    Myself and the kids really like Danny MacAskill’s latest- Imaginate- reminds me of my youth!!!!

    Can’t believe no one has said it yet! Mud Cows and Mud Cows 2! It’s a puch, puching dangerous, puching ugly, puching useless price of puching sh**t!

    Roam was the first one I saw, and is still the best.

    Oh, and to all the “I don’t watch, I’d rather be riding” folk, it isn’t an either or situation. It’s perfectly possible to have a good day’s riding and then sit down with a few beers to watch a video.

    Its the Space Monkeys tune which is still great today…

    Ever get the feeling that youโ€™re being advertised?
    Ainโ€™t nobodyโ€™s business how you wanna blow your mind

    When the rush comes slow and you canโ€™t let go
    And itโ€™s summertime on the radio
    And your dreams just wanna rip right through the sky!!

    I like the stuff by Callum Swift. MADE is probably my all-time favorite movie. The uprising is also really good.

    Lots of UK stuff + pissing about in the woods. IMO the best kind of riding ๐Ÿ™‚

    Peat and Bryceland drinking Stella in the woods 8)

    You can tell from that Josh really looks up to Steve in that video. Must have been a big inspiration to him, especially back then. Nice vid.
